Film Production and Casting Studio in Cape Town

ID: 2035


Organization: 

The company is a film and media house based in the centre of Cape Town, South Africa. The company is very young and has been started by four innovative, dynamic and fun-loving guys. 

The company specializes in corporate videos (adverts and promotional), event videography, music videos as well as sound design and music composition. There is a strong creative team that conceptualizes and collaborates closely with clients to ensure that their vision is brought to life. As the company is still young, they currently have mainly South African customers.

Another project is the casting studio just next door. The casting studio will receive requests for actors or models from international directors and will then invite local casting agencies to send their clients.

The casting studio will conduct auditions, register all applicants and prepare documentation for the clients.

Currently the company is in the process to start their own casting agency in order to have an own portfolio of models and actors.

Internship Description: 

This company is very young and therefore most elements related to the filming process are done I house by own staff members, e.g. post production, sound and locations, etc. 

Interns have the opportunity to get their hands dirty in a young and ambitious but also easy going company, where you will not only learn, but gather friends as well. 

The work in the film industry is very "task-oriented". Working hours depend on the job situation. During the shooting phase the work days sometimes can be very up to 12 hours, but in between there are also very quiet periods. During these quiet periods the working hours are usually from 09h00 – 17h00. 

The company requires interns to assist with all duties related to filming, such as to be on set as assistant producer, editing, sound, checking of equipment, scouting for locations as well as more administrational duties, such as castings, assembling of portfolios, and assist with permissions for shootings, book locations, marketing and financials.

The duties depend on the interest of the applicant and the currently available jobs and duties that need to be completed.
